some comfort here ♪ this is cnn sunday morning, great to see you, it is july 10th, i'm susan hendricks in for tj holmes. a live look at the white house where key members of congress will meet with president obama. plus, this is it -- the tabloid that brought you celebrity scandal and drama is closing its doors today. we'll take you live to london where people are getting their land edition of "news of the world." and the president will award another medal of honor this week, only the second time since the vietnam war it has been awarded to a living recipient. we'll introduce you to him. and good morning to the men and
6:01am
women watching us on the armed forces network. a big thank you to you as well. we're just hours before tonight's debt reduction talks at the white house. live pictures there this morning. the ambitious hopes for a large-scale deal have been dashed. the apparent sticking point? taxes, here is how house speaker, john boehner, sees it as democrat and republican leader prepare for tonight's showdown. quote, despite good-faith efforts to find common ground, the white house will not pursue debt reductions without tax hikes. i believe the best approach may be to focus on producing smaller cuts, that still meets our call for spending reforms and cuts greater than the amount of the debt limit increase. the white house talking about expectations at those talks. here's what spokesman dan fiver had to say about it. he said we cannot ask the middle
6:02am
class and seniors to bear all the burden of higher costs and budget cuts. we need a balanced approach, he says that asks the very wealthiest and special interests to pay their fair share as well and we believe the american people agree. cnn congressional correspondent kate baldwin joins us from washington. kate, now difficult is the meeting going to be for both sides to agree here? >> reporter: it was always going to be difficult and everyone always agreed it was a pivotal meeting, the first time that all the big players were going to be in the room together to have details to talk over since staff from the white house and members of congress have been working the past few days to try to get some detail that the members could really, could really start negotiating. what this kind of shows us is that people thought this is a very tall order. it's going to be very tough negotiations and now we know that the talks over the grand deal that they've been trying to
6:03am
target at least something in the area of $4 trillion, that we've heard in deficit reduction have effectively broke down. it doesn't mean that all the talks have broken down. it means that they're going for the other deal that has been talked about as well. something in the area of more than $2 trillion in deficit reduction. it's still a big deal. but that deal comes with most, that savings comes mostly in deficit cuts, not the significant changes to medicare and medicaid and social security and increased revenue in terms of tax increases that was going to be needed for the $4 trillion that we all knew and had been hearing from members on the hill that any kind of tax increase was continuing to be a very big problem inside the republican party. and at the end of the day, susan, you know, we need to find enough members to vote for a bill that's going to pass in order to get the debt ceiling raised by august 2nd. and we're coming up on the deadline. >> the deadline is august 2nd, how critical is that to make to
6:04am
ewing 2 dnd? >> reporter: the treasury secretary said that's the deadline, that's very important. after that, the united states is going to be questionable how the united states will pay its bills. and everyone involved, even despite this kind of breakdown in talks, that came late last night and we'll see how that leads into the talks this morning, they are still meeting this evening. so everyone is still committed to meeting and trying to reach a deal. which also indicates they all acknowledge that this deadline is very important to meet. that raising the debt ceiling is very important. it's more important to raise the debt ceiling than to maybe stand on the political posturing that they have been doing. but it doesn't negate the fact that there are some very big differences, a gulf as it was described by speaker boehner, between the parties on where they're going to agree and what they can agree to at this point. but if you can take anything good from this right now, is that they're still meeting this game -- on their position before
6:05am
they have to head behind closed doors. >> i think they know how crucial this is. kate bolduan, thanks so much. in japan, four months after suffering from a massive earthquake and tsunami, a major aftershock rocked the northeastern coast about nine hours ago and yes, it is the same area that was devastated in march. the 7.1 aftershock prompted tsunami warnings, all of which have now been canceled. the earthquake could be felt as far away as tokyo. a geophysicist tells us that the latest tremor is an aftershock from the march earthquake. the space shuttle "atlantis" is roughly five hours away from approach to the international space station. the crew get a longstanding tradition of a musical wakeup call. it was a coldplay tune. do you want to guess what the musical selection was? here it is. ♪ sun is shining in the sky ♪ there ain't a cloud in sight
6:06am
♪ and don't you know ♪ it's a beautiful new day ♪ hey hey >> people are dancing in the studio, not a bad view to awaken to, either. as for the tune, if you correctly guessed "mr. blue sky" by e.l.o., the electric light orchestra, you're right. prince william and kate are seen wrapping up their visit to canada. prince william even got in on a polo match earlier in the day. there he is, wearing number four. the royal couple will spend their last day in the states in a less glamorous setting 0en los angeles's skid row, visiting an arts program for inner-city children. funeral plans are set for former first lady, betty ford, who passed away at age 93. the first service will be held
6:07am
in palm desert, california. the second is scheduled for thursday afternoon in grand rapids, michigan. mrs. ford will be laid to rest next to her late husband on the grounds of the gerald r. ford presidential museum in grand rapids. how about this, the yankees' derek jeter goes deep and the home town crowd goes nuts. take a look. jeter enters the history books with a home run to left field. his teammates celebrated the milestone at home plate, jeter came out of the dug-out for several curtain calls, the first yankee and only the 28th player in history to make 3,000 hits. the guy who caught the ball is christian lopez. he gave it back to jeter. he didn't have to, though. but he said he didn't think it was going any other way. congratulation does him. and he got to meet jeter because he gave the ball back. reynolds? >> see, there's an ulterior
6:08am
motive. >> he was just being nice. >> i totally agree with you. it's yeeweird that he's only th 28th person, but to do it in dramatic fashion makes it better. the rain continues to come down in parts of the midwest. the heat continues to go up. we'll talk about some scorching temperatures in a few moments and we're going to take a look at the possibility of rough weather later this afternoon in a few moments. you know after 168 years covering britain's scandals, tabloid "news of the world" rolled out its last issue today. [ applause ] >> the paper built a reputation reporting on some of the biggest scandals in the united kingdom. but the owner rupert murdoch ordered the publication closed after allegations of hacking by police and reporters. the paper has been a bridge institution for longer than a
6:09am
century. the final issue, says "thank you and good-bye." i'm sure there are many people, including some employees sorry to see it go today. >> i think a lot of people are sad to see it go i actually have a copy of the final edition here, "thank you and good-bye" is headline. they have some incredible headlines that they covered. this is a paper that's over a century old and they've covered everything from all kinds of scandals. and amazingly for example, things from 100 years ago, from charles dickens' time. so people very sad to see an institution like this go. we've seen reaction from other tabloids. the "sunday post" rediscover a warm, entertaining newspaper, honesty, integrity and decency. clearly a lot of other papers here are trying to mark themselves as being different from "news of the world" not doing the same practices such as phone-hacking. that's a scandal that has shaken
6:10am
the nation and the very government, the prime minister himself is under a lot of fire for this. this is a scandal, even though the newspaper has closed, it will keep going on for a few months, especially as the police investigation gets under way. >> so as i understand, i believe there's more than 200 employees without a job now. will this paper, "news of the world" close and reopen under another name, do you know? >> well there's a lot of speculation at this point. nobody's quite sure. the sister paper to "news of the world" is "the sun" the daily tabloid here. the most widely read paper here in the uk. so what "news of the world" management said that employees can apply at other publications. we don't know what news international has planned for all people working there. >> any buzz about the murdochs and what's next for them. rupert murdoch made a bold move in shutting the paper down. >> this is the big question.
6:11am
there are a lot ever reports that rupert murdoch is on his way to london here. not only to handle the "news of the world" closure, but the biggest prize in the media empire is his takeover bid for british broadcaster, b sky b. the takeover bid is now in danger because of the hacking scandal. the government needs to approve the takeover and say they want to look at the phone hacking scandal before they approve the deal. that could scuttle the deal. and it's possible that murdoch will be coming over here to handle it. the very fact that "news of the world" has had to be closed doesn't look good on news international and they have to try to stem the problem where it stands and hope it doesn't spread to any other parts of their media empire. >> thank you, i bet it will sell a lot today. saying thank you and good-bye, appreciate it. a new study just released that exposes the truth about what makes men three times happier in relationships. guess what, it's not sex.

6:13am
good morning, st. louis, it will be a hot one there, i was laughing at reynolds, he's dancing over there to "the heat wave" song. >> i have no idea what you're talking about. i was sitting here adjusting my watch. just teasing. >> how is it looking over there? >> it's looking okay. >> here's a question for you, be
6:14am
honest -- do you like to cuddle with your wife? >> wow. >> hold that thought. because you have to think about it for a while. >> let me think about it and we'll segue right into where we left off. it's a loaded question. why don't we kick off with the weather first. yesterday morning one of the big stories was -- some of the rough weather we had in the upper midwest. guess what, we're back exactly where we started. see some storms develop south of minneapolis. and we could see a lit bit of flash flooding going on in parts of the freeway near northfield, even into watoma. the reason is we're seeing the showers drift apart. some of these developing over some of the same places we saw rain. so it could give you flooding in some spots. it's not going to be massive, but still there is going to be the potential. another thing we're going to see is the possibility of storms redeveloping into the afternoon. extending from places like the western great lakes, clear
6:15am
across parts of the central and northern great plains. scattered storms possible across much of the four corners. the monsoon season, the wind-driven rain coming in from the gulf of california, in the pacific, it's the high-base thunderstorm, there could be a lot of lightning and with the rainfall, it could be torrential at times. so a lot of the dry arroyos you have in parts of new mexico and arizona, those could be filled up in the afternoon. very hot and steamedy in texas, could see some thunderstorms by the afternoon in parts of the southeast. let's talk about the temperatures, yesterday it was ridiculous with some of the heat. today, the ridiculousness will continue, a high of 101 in dallas, 93 in houston. 97 in memphis and 95 in new orleans. this is the time a lot of meteorologists will turn to parents and tell you to take it easy. if you have the plans of going out, doing some outdoor work, i don't care if it's planting
6:16am
flowers or cutting the grass, you have to take it easy. the heat will intensive in places like kansas city, chicago, minneapolis and salt lake city and washington, d.c. let's pitch it back to susan. i'm going to come over here to, what was the question again? >> this is a good day to take it easy, stay in and cuddle with your wife. do you like it? >> do i like to cuddle? >> well it sure beats the hell out of a high five. that's one thing. also, if depends on the setting. if you happen to be at the beach at night, that's great. at a tractor pull, not so much. where you happen to be is a major player. >> a nascar race? not so much. >> if it's near turn four at talladega, it's a possibility. >> this is a loaded question. here's why i ask, i have a point. men are three times happier, reynolds in their relationships when there's a lot of kissing and cuddling going on.
6:17am
researchers talked to 1,000 couples, middle aged and longer, all of them in long-term relationships. the longer women are in relationships, the more sexually satisfied they become. so basically the conclusion, i want to give you the story and i got it. men like to cuddle. >> i have to agree. the high five thing doesn't work, does it? you come home from a long business trip, you walk in the door, you greet your lady with the fist bump. >> and then there's the man-hug with the double tap. >> great talking to you this early in the morning, ren oeds. there's been another close encounter with a bear at yellowstone national park. the one just days after a fatal bear attack here. we'll hear from the hiker who had the close call. and race continues to play a part in the nation's unemployment picture. we'll detail the african-american jobless numbers for you. next, but first, a look at the
6:18am
states with the highest unemployment rates last month. nevada has the highest rate at 12.1. not far behind, california at 11.7, the top five states with the lowest unemployment. stay close. our next generation mobile broadband experience to 55 million more americans, many in small towns and rural communities, giving them a new choice. we'll deliver better service, with thousands of new cell sites... for greater access to all the things you want, whenever you want them. it's the at&t network... and what's possible in here is almost impossible to say. even though i'm a great driver, and he's... not so much. well, for a driver like you, i would recommend our new snapshot discount. this little baby keeps track of your great driving habits, so you can save money. [sighs] amazing. it's like an extra bonus savings.
6:19am
[ cackling ] he's my ride home. how much can the snapshot discount save you? call or click today. welcome back. before the break we show you the states with the highest unemployments in june. the numbers. now here are the states with the lowest jobless numbers. the five states on your screen all have unemployment rates of less than 5%.
6:20am
north dakota has the lowest at 3.2%. you know, gender and race continue to influence jobs numbers in the u.s. according to pew research center study, between 2009 and 2011, men gained 805,000 jobs, while women lost 281,000. the outlook is even more bleak for african-americans. take a look at this the overall unemployment rate is 9.2%. but for african-americans, it is 16.2. elise lavit has more. >> susan, when you look at the latest job numbers, african-americans have been particularly hard hit. but this is a problem that didn't begin with the recession. the job market has not been friendly to mark summers. he lost his job three months ago and has come to this d.c. career center for help. >> apparently one place is looking at me, waiting for a contract to come down from the government. >> the latest jobs report found the unemployment rate for african-americans is just over
6:21am
16%. double that of white americans. >> in 1963 or '64, the unemployment rate was 4%. and the unemployment rate for african-americans was 8%. >> it's always been that way? >> give or take, yes. >> howard university's wilmer leon says that's because many african-americans lack access to education and training which could help them get a job and he says racism is often at play. despite laws against discrimination. >> unless america makes the significant investment in equality then african-americans and other people of color, in particularly now hispanics are going to find themselves in a constant struggle. >> the congressional black caucus wants the government to do more. >> this is an urgent appeal to the white house, to the congress. and to the people in municipalities all around this country. that we must attack this issue
6:22am
of unemployment and that black unemployment. >> highly educated african-americans aren't immune. reginald booker teaches computer classes at maryland's montgomery classes, even with a ph.d. in chemistry, it's been years since he had a job in his field. the recession has only made it worse. >> i've applied to naurm of different places. it's been an uphill battle. >> they tell you that your qualifications were impressive, but you didn't get the job. do you think being african-american has anything to do with it? >> no one actually says you're african-american, no we're not going to give you a job. i look at the statistics and i, and i see the opposite. >> i think it's more of a socioeconomic problem. people who are low-income have a harder time finding a stable job or jobs that give them long-term financial stability. >> two faces of the same problem -- one they both hope their government and society will fix. >> now, experts say the 16% figure is only the official
6:23am
rate. it doesn't count the thousands of african-americans who have given up hope of finding a job and stop looking. if we include those numbers, we could actually be looking at a 25% rate of unemployment for african-americans. which is why you see some in congress raising the alarm bells to get at the root causes. susan. >> thank you. the shuttle "atlantis" launch marked the end of one era in space. another one in space travel begins for nasa. we'll show you some of the high-tech machinery the agency is now planning. and how many shuttle missions have taken place over the last 30 years? the answer, right after this. it's never been easier to get the whole grain you want from your favorite big g cereals. from cheerios to lucky charms, there's whole grain in every box. make sure to look for the white check. t i've tried it.ain in every box. but nothing's helped me beat my back pain. then i tried this. it's salonpas. this is the relief i've been looking for. salonpas has 2 powerful pain fighting ingredients that work for up to 12 hours.

6:25am
6:26am
. before the break i asked you how many shuttle missions have taken place over the last 30 years.
6:27am
there have been 134 missions, covering a half-billion miles of flight. the current and last mission is the 135th. nasa's final four waking up in space this morning on the final mission of the u.s. space program. ♪ ♪ sun is shining in the sky ♪ there's ain't a cloud in sight ♪ >> nasa said the agency is looking ahead, working on spacecrafts and other high-tech machinery right out of science fiction. >> this is a cool situation in which life does imitate art. a lot of nasa scientists who love science fiction coming up with ways to do it in real life. the message that nasa is trying to convey is that it's not over. to back it up, they've been pointsing to all sorts of things coming up. one is this, take a look at this video. this is a planned mission to jupiter. it's the juneau spacecraft,
6:28am
that's taking off in just a few weeks, an animation from nasa. a five-year trip all the way out to jupiter. >> i couldn't believe that, i was thinking, are we there yet? >> longest trip anyone has ever heard. >> it takes off in a few weeks and they're hoping it will arrive in mid 2016. say they hope it will improve understanding of the beginning of the entire space system. and a rover heading out to mars, that's much quicker, only nine months. and actual video of an asteroid called vesta. in just a few days, a u.s. spacecraft, "dawn" will arrive at its orbit right there. you can see this in the night sky. it's the only asteroid that you can see in the night sky and you can only see it this month and next. when you're looking at it you can know that's right when the u.s. spacecraft got there. i want to you hear from the nasa administrator who has been talking about fact that he's absolutely convinced that nasa will maintain the lead.
6:29am
his name is charles boldin. here's something he said just the other day. >> when i hear people say or listen to the media reports that the final shuttle flight marks the end of u.s. human space flight, i have to tell you -- you all must be living on another planet. >> said nasa wants u.s. astronauts to travel on private space missions and they're working on new types of vehicles to bring people to space. nasa calls these the flagship of its next-generation space fleet. a multipurpose crew vehicle based on the orion vehicle. to assist in space they're creating more of these robo-nauts, a torso version is up on the international space station. they want to send these astronauts up to mars. so short version here. they're saying look, we have all of these projects, it's not coming to an end. even with all this, a lot of critics are saying, the u.s.
6:30am
will not be in the lead. >> we're talking about the deficit and when you think about trips to jupiter, to mars, that that's where it will be cut. how do we get the funding for it. >> we don't know. there are serious plans that could be cut. and the reason is this year, nasa had a $19 billion budget. that's not going to happen when they figure out the fiscal year 2012. we're going to have to see what gets cut. a lot of people weighing in on this on facebook and twitter. it's an interesting dilemma. you want the u.s. to be in the lead in space. but we have people who don't have enough food in this country and we have to focus on our financial priorities. >> the good news is, it's not over. when you think of the last launch, it doesn't mean it's null and void, they're still exploring. >> but how much in the future? we don't know. >> josh, appreciate it. this is scary when you hear this. it sounds complicated, but it's much easier than you think. how to hack a cell phone. coming up next. copd makes it hard to breathe,
6:31am

6:33am
welcome back on this sunday morning, i'm susan hendricks, in today for tj holmes, it is half-past the hour. after a long history of bloody civil war, sudan split this weekend forming the world's newest nation, south sudan. its capital city is juba. independence comes after years of fighting between the islamic sudanese government and the predominantly christian south. we're joined live from juba. you spoke to the son of billy graham who attended the inauguration ceremony yesterday. what role did christianity play
6:34am
in all of this in bringing independence? >> well i think franklin graham's presence and the seat he was given behind the president was very indicative of how instrumental the evangelical movement has been here in helping to make public the conflict. and the reverend, when i asked him whether he would be able to respond to khartoms, he became aware of the situation in the south and knew after the network they could bring it to the attention to the people in the united states and perhaps try to help form u.s. policy towards sudan. >> such a big day yesterday.
6:35am
secretary of state hillary clinton is saying independent presents a new beginning for the people of south sudan, independence does, she says it's an opportunity to build a nation that embodies the values and aspirations of its people. the question is, is the violence over, do you think or will this be a long process? >> the violence between the north and the south isn't over. the intertribal conflicts we've seen flaring up in the south don't look anywhere near resolution and it's one of the issues i was discussing with the reverend franklin graham. his network has a huge presence along the north-south border. and he said their information was even as they were sitting, even as we were all watching that flag being raised and independence being declared, that he has information that the government of khartoom was still
6:36am
bombing. the obstacles are very steep for this fledgling nation. >> we appreciate your live report. we are checking the top stories on the eve of tonight's debt limit talks slated for the white house. the divide between democrats and republicans become more apparent. the sticking point is apparently tax hikes. the endangers the large-scale deal of proposed cutting $4 trillion. in japan, all tsunami warnings are canceled after an aftershock struck off the northeast coast ten years ago. the same area devastated by the march earthquake. in fact, geophysicists say the latest tremor is an aftershock from the 9.0 quake. the former director of chicago's burr-oaks cemetery has been imprisoned grounds keepers
6:37am
were double-stacking graves. three more cemetery employees face charges in that case. "thank you and good-bye" is the final headline for the united kingdom's popular tabloid newspaper "news of the world" it was shut down after 168 years in publication. after staffers were found to be hacking telephones, eavesdropping and bribing officials in order to get news scoops. maybe you have an idea of how your computer could be hacked. but how exactly does phone hacking work? we've got the perfect person to answer that question, tech reporter katy lindall. >> hi, i hate to shatter the illusion, when a lot of people hear phone hacking they think these journalists were out there with overly complex technology and software systems, but actually it's incredibly easy to do, voicemail hacking. i talked with the top mobile security app mobile security. and we've broke down all the
6:38am
different ways of the "news of the world" reporters, given the timeline that we know of, actually hacked into the voicemails. a few ways, a lot of these are very low tech. first off, the first way is pretexting. now pretexting is just a fancy word. there's a lot of allegations from staffers coming out that they actually called up the carriers were like, hey, forgot my p.i.n. number, i need to get access. and another way is to guess their p.i.n. numbers, a lot of people still carried the carrier's default p.i.n. numbers, so they knew pretty quickly what the p.i.n. number would be. and sequential numbers, 7-7-7-7. or 1-2-3-4. or the best way that this could have happened is to use caller i.d. spoofing. caller i.d. spoofing is a hack that's been around for quite a few years. it's simple to execute. i can actually make a call and have any number show up on the
6:39am
phone. if i were to call you and use caller i.d. spoofing i could have it show up as the white house, i could have it show up as president obama. or if i know that you don't have a password on your voice mail, which to this day, a lot of people still don't, i can call your phone with your number and trick it into giving me access and authentication directly to your voicemail. >> scary that it's that easy, right? a scary situation at yellowstone national park after a bear gets too close to a woman, she tries to jump in the water, make a swim for it the bear follows her into the water. we'll show you how the story ends. to playing "angry birds." it lets you access business forms on the go, fire off e-mails with the qwerty keypad, and work securely around the world so you can get back to playing "angry birds." it's the android-powered phone that mixes business with pleasure. so let's get our work done, america,

welcome back, and reynolds is here, we have two horrible stories out of yellowstone park. reynolds, a man was mauled to death by a bear this week and you've got to hear this, a woman gets the fright of her life after another bear gets too close. a common problem, i would assume at yellowstone. >> absolutely. >> with the bears around. she, you would think you would jump in the water, you're safe. not so much, patrick ottoman has more. >> reporter: days after a fatal bear attack here, another too close for comfort brush a grizzly. >> does the hiker know? >> as the bear approaches her, hiker erin profit runs out of ground to retreat to. the bear doesn't charge her, but isn't backing down, either. erin gets ready to make a swim
6:42am

6:49am
>> india imports about 60 tons of gold a year for domestic use. so here, under this kerala temple, is this unbelievable treasure. billions of dollars of treasure. you asked me how it was found. it's a very fascinating story because there was a lawyer who was living on the temple grounds in the housing and he stopped paying rent. he said i'm no longer go to pay rent. because i only pay rent to the gods or the king and the king died in the 1990s. so he then sued the state and because of his litigation, it resulted in them opening these vaults. several vaults, there are around six or seven vaults and uncovering these vast amounts of treasure. now what's interesting is who gets to keep it. >> exactly. susan. who gets to keep it is it kerala state? is it going to go to the people or the royal family? or does it belong to the country as a whole? every treasure story needs a sequel. you're seeing the guards now

we can continue the effort to establish greater security in this country. >> and cnn pentagon correspondent, chris lawrence, has more on panetta's trip to afghanistan and a look ahead to the coming week in military matters. chris? >> well, susan, leon panetta is on his first overseas trip as the new secretary of defense. visiting afghanistan this weekend. and back at home, change to a longstanding policy. in the past, troops who committed suicide in places like iraq and afghanistan, their families got all the same benefits, but they never got the condolence letter from the president of the united states. like troops who were killed in battle or accidents did. well the white house has changed that policy and will now send those condolence letters to those families. the idea being, trying to destigmatize some of the ptsd and mental health issues that troops are facing. there was some push-back, because some of the military
6:54am
feel that by doing so, it diminishes the sacrifice of those who die in battle. but families of those suicide victims say this is long overdue. also we're looking ahead to tuesday where the president will award only the second living recipient in these wars of iraq and afghanistan, the medal of honor. sergeant first class leroy arthur petrie will receive the medal of honor on tuesday. he was in afghanistan, about three years ago, had taken fire, taken shrapnel and when a grenade landed just a few feet away from he and some other soldiers, sergeant petrie picked up the grenade and tried to throw it away. it saved his soldiers, but in the process, it detonated and immediately amputated his right hand. president obama will award him the medal of honor on tuesday. susan? >> certainly a a good definition of a hero, chris lawrence, thank you. the navy's ace flying squad

7:00am
closing its doors today. we'll take you live to london where people are getting their last edition of "news of the world." we are just hours before tonight's debt reduction talks at the white house. they resume tonight, 6:00 p.m. eastern. the ambitious hopes for a large-scale deal have been dashed. the apparent sticking point is money and taxes. here is how house speaker john boehner sees it. he says despite good-faith efforts to find common ground, the white house will not pursue a bigger debt reduction agreement without tax hikes. i believe, he says, the best approach may be to focus on producing a smaller measure, based on the cuts identified in the biden-led negotiations that still meets our call for spending reforms and cuts greater than the amount of the debt limit increase, unquote. the white house also talking about expectations at those talks. here's what spokesman dan pfeiffer had to say. we cannot ask the middle class
7:01am
and seniors to bear all the burden of the budget cuts. we need a balanced approach that asks the very wealthiest and special interests to pay their fair share as well and we can believe that the american people agree with that. cnn congressional correspondent, kate bolduan joins us from washington. break it down for us, the republicans and the democrats are on obviously different sides here. >> they are and they have been all along. it's in this issue of taxes and tax increases, in terms of new revenue is not a new issue, but did have their sights set on this so-called grand deal. it was somewhere in the area of deficit savings in $4 trillion, it was going to likely come with a very hefty $1 trillion in new revenue. a very tall order as it was going to call for new revenue, in terms of tax increases, as well as significant changes to medicare and social security. very important issue to democrats and republicans. and what we're seeing now,
7:02am
susan, is basically that the talks over this grand deal have effectively broken down. speaker boehner saying that the issue is over tax increases. but the white house pushing back, that the deal, pushing back that the deal broke down because the white house wanted tax increases. they're pushing back saying that's not the case. what we know is that speaker boehner and the president did speak by phone yesterday. we know that the staff for congressional leaders and the wlous have been in talks over the past few days. trying to get down to the nitty-gritty. so when the negotiators cake to the table this evening, they had some details to talk about. and what we see now is that while their sights were set on this grand deal, speaker boehner does not think that they're going to be able to reach that. not surprising probably amongst some republicans, because i'll tell you that the idea of in your revenue, in terms of tax increases has been a big problem inside the republican party. we've been hearing it on the hill, since the idea was kind of floated around. now what they're talking about, if you call it the medium deal
7:03am
versus the grand deal, something that was talked about in the biden group talks that fell apart earlier. somewhere in the area of $2 trillion in deficit savings, still significant, but it is smaller than the grand deal. but what we're seeing is that they're kind of trying to make their positions known as they head into this very important, very pivotal meeting this evening and they're still meeting this evening. so they all are recognizing that they need to get something done. it's just where near going to get it done and how much it's going to be at this point. >> the medium deal. so speaker boehner not too optimistic about tonight, is he? >> i'll tell you, even friday, we started getting indications from him that he seemed to be trying to lower expectations, saying there was a very large gap, a gulf in terms of the differences between where they were and where the democrats were and the white house was. but while there are big differences, there is acknowledgement and agreement on all sides, that this is very important to meet this deadline and very important to reach a
7:04am
deal so they can raise the debt limit in time. so if there's anything that they are agreeing on at this point, is that these negotiations are crucial. and that everyone needs to be at the table. because they don't want these negotiations to really break down. and we know that they are all still planning to go to the white house this evening. so the negotiations continue. but a very interesting kind of move, late last night, with speaker boehner coming on to make his position known going into the meeting that he doesn't think they can go for this grand deal. >> kate bolduan, thanks so much, we appreciate it you can bet the ongoing debt talks will be fresh fodder on the campaign trail. especially the republican presidential hopeful. paul stein hauser has more on the week ahead in politics. >> good morning, susan. a bunch of the presidential candidates will campaign this week in some of the crucial early voting states. among them, herman kane who
